“The Catechism of the Catholic Church may not seem like a priority in these crazy times. Keeping up with breaking news and its impact on our family lives is a full-time job! Besides, the long season of Ordinary Time feels like a spiritual vacation. It is scattered with solemnities, but not as intense as the seasons on either side of it. And with digital ways to learn about the Faith, a thick book can seem archaic and outdated.
I used to think this way. I assumed the Catechism was full of complicated language and philosophical arguments. Like an encyclopedia, I considered it an index and not spiritual reading.
That is until I opened it. Once I did, I was stunned. Come to find out, the Catechism is not a dusty volume of difficult text. The Catechism is a rich exposition of the Catholic Church’s teachings and a story about God’s love for us!”
The above is an excerpt from my recent post on Catholic Stand, a collaborative site offering Catholic opinions on recent events and aspects of the Faith.
